..... teh ReportLab toolkit doesn't address the printer issue at all.
It is used to produce PDF using Python scripts. The PDF can then be
printed if the Adobe or other software can do that. The older linux acrord
command used to be something like

acrord -toPostScript < somefile.pdf | lpr

but this assumes your lpr is set up and that it knows how to do postscript.
